I'm learning to manage a bunch of people who constantly has issues with all sorts of leave - medical, urgent, emergency, sudden - whatever.




I can't imagine dealing with this everyday, but it appears that this is part and parcel of managing people.




Why is it so hard to find good colleagues like my dearest hubby who even reschedules the roster on his own when he's going on paternity leave?




Yes! Imagine that!




He has to be the one to look for covers for his duties during the days when he's taking paternity leave!




And his manager even chides him when he didn't call back to inform her of who is to cover him.




I mean, really, come on! You are a manager - you should be the one looking for coverage when someone's wife delivers a baby, not ask that staff to do it himself!




Otherwise, what is the hospital paying you salary for?




You don't scrub and assist doctors...




You don't attend to emergencies when the team needs you...




Now you don't even handle staff coverage and rosters by yourself?!




I think you should come work in my place - and see how a real manager works - like a good role model!




If you can't find coverage - you go and cover your staff yourself! Don't expect the poor chap to come listen to you scold him for not calling back to tell you who is to cover him in his absence!




These people are just too lazy to be properly working and using their brains!




I wonder if I'll ever get such luck to find a good colleague like my hubby...




Some people just don't appreciate what they have. Tsk tsk.
